Greetings — 

This note is to announce that the presentation lineup for this year’s New Mexico TechFest has been released.  In addition, online registration for the event is now OPEN!

Please visit to view the lineup, read the abstracts, learn about this year's speakers, and register to attend TechFest.

Rocky Mountain Ham Radio - New Mexico (RMHAM) is pleased to announce its eighth annual New Mexico TechFest, an ARRL-sanctioned operating specialty event, on Saturday, March 5, 2022.  Due to an unexpected venue price increase and earlier concerns about the omicron variant, this year's event will be conducted virtually via the professional Zoom Webinar interface (we can't wait to return to our much preferred in-person format and a new venue in 2023).

TechFest features a day of quality presentations and demonstrations provided by some of New Mexico and Colorado’s (and beyond) leading technical hams on a variety of emerging and relevant topics within amateur radio.  Its purpose is to facilitate the sharing of technical knowledge and collaboration within the amateur radio community, and to encourage the discussion of new ideas with one another.

TechFest is open to all interested hams.  Admission is $10.  Proceeds will offset event related expenses…see website for details.

Presentation-related prizes will be drawn throughout the event.  In addition, this year’s TechFest strives to launch of a pico balloon (weather permitting), intended to travel across the country and possibly the world while carrying a VHF APRS beacon.  Hams will be able to track the location of this balloon online once launched.

Lots of information awaits you at the New Mexico TechFest (  We look forward to your participation!
